Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.

Thank you for your prompt reply. I attached the geometry files (.cc and .hh), together with two snapshots showing the unexpected rotation. The axis is vector (1,0,1), the initial orientation of the cylinder is perpendicular to the axis. But after the rotation, it is no longer perpendicular to the axis, which is weird.
